This Morning agony aunt Deidre shares heartwarming story of being awarded MBE week before husband died

This Morning’s agony aunt Deidre Sanders has emotionally recalled how it felt to be awarded an MBE a week before her husband passed away.

The former newspaper columnist was given the honour for her services to charity and mental health.

Speaking on This Morning on Tuesday, 3 January, Sanders opened up about how “special” it was to receive the award before her husband of 55 years, Rick, died.

“I think had he died before I got that news, it would have always just been a bittersweet thing so it’s lovely that we could share that,” she said.
